I found the cutest little rose teacup and saucer (and on sale-yeah!), a few tiny silver spoons, some old earring bits to repurpose for use in my jewelry, and these funny little vintage lady wooden cutouts in stands. I enjoy the whimsy and humor of them, and they add a lovely bit of quirk to my workspace!
But, yes, I have saved the best for last, the Pièce de résistance if you will:
So I know you are thinking, it's just a picture of a rose. Well, I guess you would be right. At first I was taken in by the lovely colors. The roses were done in either watercolors or markers (yes I should be able to tell the difference, but hey, I am no expert) and I just love the contrast against the carved black frame. The big surprise came when I flipped the frame over to check out the price. On the back of this frame lies the most endearing sentiment I have ever laid eyes upon:
That Paul sure does have a way with words, doesn't he? We got such a chuckle over this that I knew no matter the cost, it was coming home with me! Such a treasure was mine for only $6! Can you believe it? hahaha
One rose teacup- $5
Bits of old beaded trim- $10
Old silver spoon- $2.75
Letting the world know just how much you love your mom's smelly feet- PRICELESS!
Paul if you are out there, I just want you to know that I will treasure your work of art always. Not only does it look great with my little art and mirror collection, I know that if ever I have company over and am in need of a conversation starter, I can simply say, "Have I ever shown you my lovely rose picture?" If that won't get the conversation started maybe it's time for the company to go home- haha!
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
